Our girl's been getting out and about! I've been working on a few different pieces for a number of different websites and blogs. This is where I'll list them, and give links to them, when they're live.

Olivia's Travels

A back-packing Olivia with one foot resting on the world

Interview with Women's Health MagazineRead here. 

There is a lot more detail about my experiences in my blog.


Interview with The OCD Stories  http://theocdstories.com/podcast/catherine-benfield-perinatal-and-postnatal-ocd/

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Stuart Ralph of The OCD Stories. 

 We had a great chat and covered loads of different subjects so even though my story focuses on Perinatal OCD there will be lots of interesting and helpful snippets for anyone. It has some light humorous parts too which is something I love about it. 


Interview with Talk Radio  http://talkradio.co.uk/radio/listen-again/1518872400

I know some people prefer to listen rather than read so I thought I'd drop this here - it covers both my experiences with OCD and my recovery. I'm shortly followed by Ashley Fulwood, CEO of OCD-UK, who is always brilliant to listen to.

For both of our interviews click here

I'm in the 14:00 - 14.30 segment. You can find me about 6.5 mins in.

Ashley is at the start of the 14:30 - 15:00 segment.

Q & A with Alison Dotson https://alisondotson.com

I've recently been interviewed about OCD and Taming Olivia by Alison Dotson, author of 'Being me with OCD: How I learned to obsess less and live my life'. I used to read Alison's interviews and posts when I was trying to pluck up the courage to talk openly about my own condition. Seeing my own story on her website is incredible. Please pass this on and make sure to check out the rest of the website too theirs interviews with a range of people from the OCD community and lots of useful information as well.
